Khatam-e-Taravih Event Held at AKD Residence

Ramadan, a month of intense prayer, dawn-to-dusk fasting, and nightly feasts, is here to bless us. The fasting activity brings the faithful closer to God, reminds them of the suffering of those less fortunate, and encourages them to help out these less fortunate people. This is why Muslims greatly donate to charities and feed the hungry during this month. Apart from charity, there are certain other specialties of this beautiful month and Tarawih prayer is one of them. To offer Tarawih, Muslims lineup after Isha prayer to observe a number of rak`at and listen to the recitation of the Holy Qur’an. It is a very blessed and highly spiritual experience and its completion or the Khatam is celebrated by reciting Na’at Shareef and distributing sweets.

A similar event was celebrated at the residence of Mr. Aqeel Karim Dhedhi where thousands of Muslims gathered to listen to the recitation of the Qur’an and reflect upon it. The last rak’at was followed by a short sermon and the Mehfil e Na’at. Na’t Khawan Mahmood ul Hasan Ashrafi and Na’t Khawan Siddique Ismail Sahab lightened up the ceremony by reciting beautiful Na’at and the Dua was carried out by Maulana Bashir Ahmed Farooqi Sahab.

Many famous personalities including Mr. Farooq Sattar and Ali Zaidi also showed up to revive their faith, proving that all Muslims are equal irrespective of their color, cast, wealth or political status.

Considering the current situation in Pakistan, the ceremony hosted by AKD was a very good gesture to promote equality among Muslim men as well as the beauty of our religion. Ceremonies like Khatam e Tarawih and Mehfil e Milaad help us being a better Muslim by reviving our faith and must not be missed by any of us.
